Back From Bulgaria: What Do YOU Want Me To Write About?
As some of you know, I was hanging out with Jim Moser and his Bulgarian Boys for 8 days (4 in Houston, 4 in California) … and the last bit of that was at the gym of Ivan Abadjiev – the world famous Bulgarian coach, who has, among so many other things, coached lifters to over 500 world records.
To say that I have a lot to discuss with you is a drastic understatement.
The trouble I am facing, however, is multi-fold:
- I have been totally M.I.A. here on the blog for a while as I am sure you have noticed! So, I have a massive backlog of articles for you that I need to finish (I’ll explain WHY I am so backlogged in time -in an article, of course – but … it’s very personal, and hard for me to talk about.)
- I have a great couple of articles related to my time at Risto Sports, lessons I can share that will help you get stronger and better at the Olympic lifts. Particularly the importance of volume and intensity zones.
- My time with the Bulgarian crew was very intensive and so there is no way I can get it all out in one article: it is THIS I want your help on.
- I still have to finish my article for you on my own take on Bulgarian Training Philosophy (which is NOT the same as Bugarian training or methods, but more about how you think about things.)
So… I am working on all of this, but maybe you can help me on one of the biggies … by just telling me WHAT about Bulgarian training or methods you are curious about that? If I gleened any kind of answer I will put that into article for you.
I have some ideas already, and will write about those. But if you have something I hadn’t thought of, or if enough of you seem interested in a topic, I will be sure to dive in.
Put your questions in the comments section below and I’ll get on it!!
Here was Jim Moser’s kid, Willie, killing this 80k snatch while we were “in Bulgaria” at Abajiev and Alex Krychev’s gym … he weighs 68k and is only 13!
